My dog is spoiled

Lately I've been watching the dog treats disappear, and with 3 left in our container, I knew it was time to make more. My dog goes nuts for these, and they're healthier than a lot of treats I would normally buy in the store for him.

Mix 2 cups of flour with 1 cup of oats. I made a triple batch here because I like to stock up and some to give away.

Mix in 1/3 cup peanut butter and 1 and 1/4 cup of hot water. I just throw it all in the bowl and mix it with my hands. I would normally throw it in my Kitchen Aid mixture, but it's too thick and sticky.

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Again I do this with my hands, way easier than actually rolling it.

Lastly punch out with a cookie cutter and bake at 400 degrees for about 25-30 min. Aren't they cute? It's so gratifying to see my dog want these babies over store-bought treats. Best part? They stay good at room temperature for 6 months! Do you have any special treats/foods you make for your pets?
